    I wished with all my heart that we could just...leave this world behind. Rise like two angels in the night and magically...disappear.

    Don't combine alcohol - no need to.

    I would try 0.5mg to 1mg of ativan, I would take no more than 2mg in one day. It's a very effective anxiolytic.

    You may like ambien more - some people like ambien, I have never tried it. Out of all the benzos I have had, ativan is the least preferable for me but I still like it for various reasons.

    Benzos all have unique profiles which make one preferable to others at different times, depending on why you would need them.

    This is a pretty basic drug inquiry so I'm going to move it to Basic Drug Discussion.

    Enjoy BL and welcome! Feel free to post a thread in New Member Introductions!

    Yeah, no alcohol, unless you have a shot prepared already and have put you benzos and alcohol away. You will over indulge if you start drinking if you have no control.

    Its kinda hard to compare because the effects aren't the same, but I would say that 10mg of zolpidem tartrate (ambien) is stronger than 1mg lorazepam, but not 2mg. You should probably start with only 1mg as peoples sensitivity to lorazepam seems to vary quite a bit. Keep it under 2mg your first time of you may not remember anything.

    1mg lorazepam + a drink or two would probably be what you're looking for. lorazepam is kinda boring on its own (I quite enjoy ambien on it own btw). It's very important to limit your amount of alcohol. A little alcohol goes a long way with benzos, too much surely will lead to amnesia, bizarre/risky behavior, compulsive drug taking and/or unconsciousness.

    be safe and have fun/

    Yeah, You obviously aren't drinking and leaving the house.
    So, I see no real threat to your health besides the fact we do drugs.

    i love ambein!! the feeling you get shortly after taking it, you have to stay awake. its great!! the problem is i have noticed lately i will tend to take more and more on top of the feeling i already have. How can i just take what i need the 20mg and then make sure i dont find that bottle again!!! and take more and more or be taking half and snorting half while in my nice ambiance state that im in, its not good that it gets you like that!!

    Yeah, I hate that!
    I have to stash my bottle away because I take 20mgs and then I get whacked and start eating them vivaciously.
